In Qatar, Covid-19 is still a health threat. All individuals must cooperate and do their part to help control the virus by maintaining social distance, avoiding crowded places, wearing masks, and washing hands frequently.
Individuals must receive the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible. Those with symptoms must contact the '16000' helpline immediately. If Covid-19 is detected earlier, it will be easier to receive proper treatment and recover.
